U.S. Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market size, by application, 2014-2024 (USD Billion)
Increasing effective sludge disposal demand will drive Global sludge dewatering equipment market size from 2016 to 2024. Stringent government regulations to curb ecological damage caused by sludge has led to substantial increase in adoption of sludge dewatering equipment in North America. The U.S. Solid Waste Disposal Act, 1965, has prohibited ocean dumping, landfilling and incineration of sludge, to curb damage caused to the ecosystem and aquatic flora and fauna.
Rapid population growth coupled with growing urbanization will stimulate the sludge dewatering equipment market share. Increasing volumes of waste generated in urban areas has compelled authorities to explore cost effective and eco-friendly methods for waste disposal. In the decade from year 2000 to 2010, global urbanization increased over 25% as compared to over 15% a decade ago.
Sludge dewatering process is long and arduous and requires more time than conventional methods, which may act as a restraint to the industry growth. The infrastructural costs associated with the procedure can also act as a deterrent to adoption as it is capital intensive and requires land space.
Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market, By Technology
Sludge dewatering equipment market size from screw press for 2024 will exceed USD 1.5 billion. Industrial waste is a key applications area subject to high-volume capacity coupled with faster processing time required to complete the procedure.
Sludge dewatering equipment market share from centrifuges is set to witness growth exceeding 5% by 2024, as they are preferred for ease in adoption and maintenance. Municipal authorities and bodies are increasingly opting for centrifuges. Rotator disc application was valued over USD 600 million in 2015 and is predicted to witness strong growth over the forecast timeframe, owing to ongoing research to develop more cost effective and user friendly products.
Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market, By Application
Sludge dewatering equipment industry from industrial applications is predicted to exceed USD 2 billion by 2024 subject to growing industrialization along with growing volumes of industrial waste. Stringent government regulations to curb leakage of potentially harmful industrial waste into the environment will positively impact the industry landscape. Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 regulates methods of waste disposal and requires landfills to have protective layers to safeguard groundwater sources from liquid wastes commonly known as leachate.
Municipal applications are predicted to grow over 4% by 2024. Strict regulations to curb per capital and household waste coupled with growing awareness towards effective waste recycling will positively impact the business growth.
Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market, By Region
U.S. sludge dewatering equipment market size for 2015 was over USD 1 billion and is predicted to witness substantial growth owing to increasing public awareness coupled with introduction of strict regulations. New York City alone has eight sludge dewatering plants to effectively process the waste generated by the city every day.
For Europe, UK sludge dewatering equipment market size is expected to surpass over USD 450 million by 2024. Increasing consumer awareness coupled with limited land availability for landfills and incinerators will positively favor the industry growth. In 2015, the government authorities including Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs reported that only 27% of the water bodies qualified to be in ‘good state’ and announced plans to increase them to 40% by 2030.
China market share is set to witness growth over 7% over the forecast timeframe. Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) has passed a resolution known as Prevention of Environment Pollution Caused by Solid Waste Amendment 2004, to effectively dispose waste with minimum ecological damage.
Japan sludge dewatering equipment market size will surpass USD 150 million by 2024. The Japan Water Research Centre stated only 10% of the total waste accumulated to be discharged and the rest to have been recycled effectively to be reused in numerous end use sectors including cement manufacturing and horticulture.
Competitive Market Share
Key industry participants include Huber, Veolia water, Andritz, Alfa Laval, Dewaco, Flo Trend and Palmetto Water Solutions. In February 2016, Flo Trend Systems, ancillary of Group 42 was sold to Wassar Logistics Holdings LLC for an undisclosed amount, marking the entry of Wassar group in the water filtration business.
In 2016, Andritz collaborated with Stora Enso, one of Europe’s leading companies having varied business interests including biomaterials, packaging and paper manufacturing, to reopen an out of operation sludge dewatering plant in Finland.
Alfa Laval launched a compact and economical screw press sludge dewatering system, which is energy efficient and low maintenance in 2015. The new machine was unveiled in a European exhibition and has two standard control systems with Basic or Advanced controls.
Sludge Dewatering Equipment Industry Background
Sludge dewatering equipment market can be segmented as a water filtration process as it separates processes waste sludge to recycle the solid and liquid constituents. The increasing demand of equipment for applications including cement manufacturing, mining and mineral processing, agricultural and horticultural water usage. Global market is predicted to witness a significant growth between 2016 to 2024. The increasing waste disposal demand coupled with stringent regulations to curb landfilling and incineration will positively impact the business landscape.
